Jung told TV news channel Times Now that several teams have been sent out to trace Najeeb Ahmed, the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) student who went missing allegedly after a tiff with members of the Akhil Bhartiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) on October 14.
The ABVP has, however, denied any involvement in his disappearance.
"Najeeb was depressed and was undergoing treatment. Police have been looking everywhere for him but haven't found him so far," Jung said.
He added that police have thoroughly searched the JNU campus, hospitals and many 'dargahs' to find Najeeb.
"Najeeb's mother is going through genuine sorrow and we shouldn't politicise the matter... We shouldn't create law and order problem and let police do their job," he added.
Jung said that he will meet Najeeb's mother on Tuesday afternoon.
"I will tell her that we are doing our best to find her son and will continue to do so," Jung told the TV channel.
Urging the JNU administration to be sympathetic towards the agitated students protesting Najeeb's disappearance, he said: "I have also been a Vice Chancellor. I understand the anger of the students and share their grief. I urge the JNU administration to be sympathetic towards them."
